Apple Magic Keyboard review: Blurring the line between iPad and MacBook


The iPad Pro is a phenomenal tablet, and the Magic Keyboard makes it feel more like a bonafide computer than ever. Typing is a pleasure thanks to Apple's updated scissor-switch keys, and the fact that its key layout is nearly the same size as the...

Typing on the keyboard feels great ; Excellent and precise trackpad ; Has a USB-C port for charging the iPad ; Usable in your lap

It’s expensive ; Limited range of motion ; Can’t connect accessories through its USB port

My gripe is that I want just a little bit more from the Magic Keyboard. It’s not quite as physically flexible as I had hoped, and the nerd in me can’t help but wish I could plug accessories into the keyboard’s USB port. These limitations won’t matter...

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Review


Responsive and easy to type on ; Excellent build quality ; Trackpad makes iPad much more usable as a laptop ; Pass-through USB-C port

Expensive ; Uses some iPad battery

Apple's beautifully built Magic Keyboard turns your iPad Pro into a laptop with satisfying keys and a trackpad—at a very high price.

Apple's new keyboard rescues the number pad, wins nerds' hearts


Apple adds a full number pad to its iconic wireless keyboard. Spreadsheet dorks go wild.

The Apple Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad has light, bouncy keys that are great to type with. The new number pad makes it easier to input figures or work with some creative software shortcuts. It pairs easily and lasts a long time between charges.

The flat design can put strain on your wrist. The lack of backlight makes it harder to work with the keys at night.

Apple's slim, light, wireless Magic Keyboard gets a makeover, bringing back the number pad previously found in the old wired version. But it also costs more, so the standard Magic Keyboard may be better for you.

Apple Magic Keyboard


The Apple Magic Keyboard offers a lot of improvements over its predecessor, including a rechargeable battery, instant pairing, and a slimmer frame. But a much shallower keystroke can be uncomfortable if you're a heavy-handed typist.

Extremely compact. Rechargeable battery. Automatically pairs with your Mac via Bluetooth, using the included Lightning cable. Works wired or wirelessly. Quiet keys.

Requires OS X El Capitan or later. No tilt mechanism. Shallow keystrokes.

Conclusion On the whole, we'd recommend that you try out the Apple Magic Keyboard at your local Apple Store or Best Buy before you decide on a purchase. It's really a case of love it or hate it. If you like flat, quiet keyboards with short key travel,...

Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro Review: Your fingers will thank you


It's safe to say that I've waited 10 years for a proper iPad keyboard accessory from Apple. Was the wait for the Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro worth it? Absolutely. It's probably better to be late to the game but have a solid product, than to deliver...

Great keyboard ; Powered by iPad Pro so no separate battery to charge ; Well designed to protect the iPad Pro

Pass-through charging via USB-C is slow ; Expensive ; Smaller articulation range than expected ; The ergonomics take some getting used to

Apple Magic Keyboard review: Should have called it basic


Apple's keyboard isn't magic. It's not writing this review for me while I sip a margarita and play Two Dots, and I feel like that would be magic. What the Magic Keyboard is, is a pretty nice Bluetooth keyboard that charges with a Lightning cable....

Charges with Lightning instead of using AA batteries ; Includes a Lightning cable

Fewer features than third-party keyboards at the same price point

If you want to use one keyboard with multiple devices, the Magic Keyboard should do the trick, but I had issues switching the pairing back and forth, while the Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard more than lived up to its name.

Apple Magic Keyboard review


Apple has recently announced three new peripherals for Mac users; the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad. Is the new Magic Keyboard worth the upgrade? In our review, we take a look at the new Apple Magic Keyboard, its design, functionality...

Lightweight and compact ; Redesigned scissor mechanism provides a nice typing experience ; built-in re-chargable battery

Too expensive ; No backlit keys ; Other keyboards at same price offer more value for money

Overall, we have mixed feelings about Apple’s Magic Keyboard. Yes, it looks gorgeous, is sleek and provides a nice typing experience, but we can’t ignore the fact that it doesn’t have features that others in its price range do – backlit keys, for...
